Synopsis for the southern washington and northern oregon coast.. High pressure will continue to strengthen over the ne pacific, while thermal low pressure builds northward along the southern or coast. Thermal low pressure is expected to continue building northward into western oregon through Tuesday. A southerly wind reversal appears likely on Wednesday.

Synopsis High pressure aloft strengthens early this week over the
pacific northwest with offshore low-level flow developing Monday and
Tuesday. This will bring hot weather to the region, lasting until
mid-week.

Short term Tonight through Wednesday... Goes-16 visible satellite
imagery this evening revealed a noticeable haze along the coast and
across interior southwest washington. A few stations have reported
visibilities dropping down into the 4-5 mile range so perhaps there
is some smoke trapped in the marine layer. Anyway, this could result
in some hazy skies in the lower columbia and willamette river valleys
on Monday. Otherwise, models are in good agreement a shortwave ridge
building across the eastern pacific will move eastward over the
pacific northwest during the first half of this week. This will
produce some of the hottest temperatures of the 2019 summer Tuesday
and Wednesday. East winds look to hold at the coast for a chunk
of Tuesday so expect many of the coastal communities to climb well
into the 80s and perhaps even the low 90s in a few spots like
tillamook. Models are suggesting a decently strong southerly wind
reversal will arrive on the central coast of oregon Tuesday night so
expect temperatures to cool rather markedly on Wednesday,
particularly south of tillamook along the coast. In addition, fog
and patchy drizzle will likely rush onto the rest of the coast later
Wednesday afternoon and evening, if it does not arrive sooner.

It looks like the southern willamette valley could see its hottest
temperatures on Tuesday with 850mb temperatures climbing towards 24c.

The hottest temperatures appear likely to shift northward towards the
portland metro and columbia river gorge on Wednesday. A heat advisory
may be needed for our willamette valley clark county zones at a
minimum.

In the meantime, a moderately strong northerly surface pressure
gradient will drive breezy northerly winds on Monday. While fuels are
marginal given the recent rains, the combination of the northerly
winds and low relative humidities could bring critical fire weather
conditions to parts of the coast range and willamette valley on
Monday so the fire weather watches look on track. Neuman

Long term Wednesday night through Sunday... Wednesday night, a
ridge set up over the pacific northwest becomes negatively tilted
and the flow becomes more south-southwesterly. An marine push will
bring cloud cover to much of northwest oregon southwest washington
Wednesday night which will allow temperatures to cool slightly,
albeit remaining quite warm, on Thursday. In addition to the onshore
flow, a short wave trough, stemming from the south pacific, is
wrapped in ample moisture and advecting over the area through the
flow of the ridge. As the shortwave moves inland, the combination of
increased precipitable water and southerly flow sets the environment
up for a chance of rain showers west and along the crest of the
cascades. Thursday, with increased moisture, the shortwave
intensifying instability and daytime heating, there is a slight
chance of thunderstorms along the crest through the afternoon. Once
this shortwave passes through the area on Thursday, the persistent
ridge over the area will keep conditions dry, and a typical summer
pattern of morning clouds with afternoon clearing will be the norm
through the weekend. -muessle

Aviation Vfr conditions across the area this evening. Spotty
marine clouds are developing along the wa and or coast, but not
currently affecting any coastal TAF sites. However low level
pressure pattern as well as models such as the NAM and href show
MVFR CIGS forming at the coast and also inland in western wa.

This may be an event where stratus forms in puget sound then
spreads expands southward to the north willamette valley. Winds
becomes more offshore Monday morning so status should dissipate
quickly resulting in widespreadVFR conditions by late morning.

Kpdx and approaches...VFR conditions under mostly clear skies
expected through tonight. MVFR stratus move onto the terminal
between 13-17z Mon time frame, then return toVFR.

Marine High pressure continues to strengthen over the NE pac
today with thermal low pressure building along the south oregon
coast. This will cause n-nw winds to increase across our coastal
waters this afternoon, with gusts to 25 kt likely south of
tillamook head. While winds should easing near the immediate
coastline late tonight and early Monday morning, winds will
remain strong beyond 5-10 nm offshore. Winds strengthen further
Monday afternoon and evening, with local gale force gusts to 35
kt possible across our southern waters, especially near capes.

These strong winds will drive very steep wind waves, with seas as
high as 9 ft with average periods of 6 or 7 seconds.

The thermal trough over southern oregon will build northward into
the north oregon waters Tuesday and Wednesday. This may push the
stronger winds further offshore by midweek, and may open the door
for a southerly wind reversal late Tuesday night or Wednesday.
